Do you mean the percentage you are being paced has gone from 95% to 69%?

Does the doctor say why it has dropped?

I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
